Panda Express giving out free egg rolls for Lunar New Year

The plot follows a Chinese family of three generations that reunites to celebrate the Chinese New Year. Over the last decade, China has dispatched 31 escort task forces, which included more than 100 ships and 26,000 personnel, and has helped escort around 6,600 vessels-half of which were foreign owned.

Despite a slowing economy, more Chinese are travelling overseas during the holidays, booking family trips to Thailand, Japan and other top destinations.

A blue Spring Festival can bring out the blues. This year, the streets are filled with handsome lanterns and bright decorations to mark the holiday. Throughout China, the holiday season, also known as chunjie, lasts for more than two weeks. Using Drewry's World Container Index (WCI) weekly benchmark rates for ex-Shanghai to Rotterdam and Los Angeles, since 2012 (the Year of the Dragon) the average decrease immediately post-CNY has been approximately -1.5% for both lanes. In China, they have public holidays for an entire week and people enjoy it to the fullest. 2019 is the year of the Pig, while 2018 was the year of the Dog.

Roasted as a subversive symbol and chopped from a video streaming website in China, it seems Peppa Pig, the loveable but imperious British cartoon character, faces a bleak future in the communist-led country.

Today is the first day of the Year of the Pig according to the Chinese lunar calendar.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Monday extended his warm wishes for the Chinese Lunar New Year, or Spring Festival.

In this Monday, Jan. 28, 2019, photo, Muslim women take a selfie at a shop selling Lunar New Year decorations in the Chinatown area of Jakarta, Indonesia. Children receive red envelopes filled with money for good luck. People will eat dumplings every day for every meal.

Many rituals including spring-cleaning homes, decorating streets and hosting large family banquets on New Year's Eve are common practice.
